Just finished my build... on STN Grail rims running 700x43 Panaracer Gravelking SK's

I have clearance for days... and rocks, and mud...

I call this bike my Magic Carpet Ride... MCR!

Looks gorgeous.  I take it you like the ride?  How does it ride/handle?  Why did you get it over th GR250?

Short answer was price... I scored this frame on a deal I couldn't refuse directly from Lynskey, the second answer is I wanted something that was solidly in between a gravel bike and a racy Cross bike... The Cooper is exactly that..
The bike is rock solid at 40+ mph in the mountains on the road... it floats over the rough off the beaten path and I can lean it motorcycle style through the turns because of the tire size and profile... I am absolutely in love with the bike!

I will probably try and score the Pro GR as a stable mate sometime next year, Just to give the GR platform and 6/4 Ti a go.

Thanks.  I tend to lean more towards CX than gravel, and am contemplating a one of those frames.   Looks tempting!

I've seen the frames on sale at Lynskey, Nashbar, and somewhere else for ~1200?

I bought my frame from Lynskey Directly through their eBay store... I upgraded the graphics to etched, the finish to industrial mill, and the dropouts to 12x142 through axle.

I think I came in under $900.00

they don't always have everything available though so...

Ive bought 5 frames from them so far the product and service has been exemplary.
